merry christmas at christmas time, doesn't matter whether they're jewish or any religion, it's a salutation, a greeting of goodwill. we've got to get over this sensitivity. you make 10 billion dollars, you put in a billion. you make $10 you put in 1. of course you've got to get rid of the loopholes. [applause] but now, now, some people say, they say well, that's not fair. because it doesn't hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars as much as the guy who made 10. where does it say you have to hurt the guy. >> megyn: and now brad, a former deputy assistant to president george w. bush and dan, the president of gotham ghost writers. an interesting question posed by miss crowly whether it was disrespectful and some on the panel, say it was disrespectful for the doctor to speak this way before the president at the national prayer breakfast. dan, your thoughts? >> i teach a class at nyu and the first thing i tell my students he when you're talking about judging ethical behavior context is the most important thing. if dr. karr son said this at rnc convention at the heritage foundatio
religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
's an election, consisting of the cardinals, the religion, will meet in rome to decide on a new pope. that will happen before the end of march. again, there had been reports in the past couple of months that his health had been failing, that he had difficulty reading text, and he had in the past suggested if popes had problem in office with their health, that, in fact, that they should step down. he followed his own message. in fact, he will be stepping down less than eight years into his papacy. to show how historic this is, guys, the last time this happened was 600 years ago. that happened to be pope gregory in the year 1415. we just heard a press conference from vatican officials in the past ten minutes or so and they looked surprised. they said they got this information this morning. so secrecy is the name of the game in the vatican. benedict is his name. he is a german. he was a strong conservative. they called him the enforcer in the church prior to becoming a pope. the pope's rotweiler, referring to a dog, that's how he was referred to as well. the choice of ratzinger as pope
campaigned. >> steve did all day. >> i'm the right age. >> call him now? >> and the right religion. >> 42 years. you know, what's interesting to me about this is you're right. you know, benedict is mr. inside and his election, first of all, there were so many reasons why it was sort of doubtful, he was an unlikely choice. likely but unlikely in 2005. election was made possible by rules change that pope john paul ii put in place in 1996 and took the old super jorkt with two thirds of the cardinals to agree an they have as many ballots it took and he said after 30 ballots, a mere 30 ballots, majority rule wins and when somebody gets a majority, end the process because the majority hangs on and then win and probably enabled benedict to win in 2005. almost unanimous and four ballots and that's it. he did away with the rules change and so we have reverted the two thirds majority and it's the only way that pope john paul ii would have become the pope. there was sort of two candidates duking it out and he was the compromise choice and the unlikely, nobody thought him, polish guy with a chance. a
not heard a sermon since the 1950s against birth control. >> public religion research institute that i do some work with, 70% of church going, weekly church going -- >> 70%. >> 70% disagree with the church's teaching on this. so it's clearly true here. it's true throughout western europe. just to go back to the pundit tri for a second, on the ouleete matter -- >> he's the quebec guy. >> who i should be for. there's a great saying among the folks in the vatican, after a fat pope, a thin pope, he is too much like benedict and he might look like benedict light. i'm trying to knock down all the front-runners because i think our best hope for a pope like john xxiii is -- a long -- >> i think a chubby pope would be -- i don't think governor christie is available for this particular line of work although he's a fellow religious. i want to get back to you, linda, i read your column all the time, and i think your values are a tad to my right, a tad or a half a tad. that's all right. i know you're smiling because it's true. let's talk about this. a lot of people who weren't catholic are wondering w
then that they get bitter king to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or antitrade center. as with a toy to explain their frustrations. >> the comments became a big part of the discussion on the left-right culture war. republicans were happy to publicize his comments, but these days they're terrified they might be losing the culture wars on some front, and they may well will. let's look at the grounds on gay marriage. once unthinkable, nine states and the district of columbia have legalized same-sex marriage either by court degree, legislative action or actual popular vote. and now illinois, delaware, and hawaii are also considering legalizing gay marriage, same-sex marriage. and the rights retreat on cultural issues extends to other areas as well. i'm joined by lauren ashburn, found over the daily download and a contributor to the daily beast. oftenly confused with hillary rodham clinton. but not politically. let me talk about this, because you're on the front all the time fighting for same-sex rights and gay rights generally. isn't
of those weird guys. i mean, because i'm not a big fan of organized religion, but i love god. >> hello, marilyn. >> as do the contestants on the the show. we went to atlanta for a casting call where before anything else, would-be players have to pass a 30-question test. >> so here's your quizzes. >> would you be able to name all of the books of the new testament in order? >> matthew, mark, luke, john, romance, first and second, corinthians, galatians and ephesians, philippians, kohl oshians and titus and hebrews, james, first and second peter, first and second third john, june and revelation. ooh! >> we are mission impossible! come on! >> the lord works in mysterious ways. >> go jesus, go jesus, go! >> 300 teams auditioned including the rockin' rabbi two rabbis and a theologian student in upstate new york who did so well they earned a place in the second season. >> think we're putting a lot of pressure on ourselves to represent. we feel like within the old testament we know what we're talking about and we should be able to show that to the rest of the world. >> cain is absolutely right
. they were released several hours later. i don't care much for people who use religion as a cloak to justify hatred, injustice and fear and i can't imagine god, should he or she or it exist, does either. i am so proud of my sister and niece for nighting for what they believe in, by having nerve to pray at a wall of prayer while being female. sara sidner is joining us in jerusalem. plain to us the significance of this, being at the wailing wall and what women are wearing and where they are praying. why does that matter? >> reporter: look, it's the most holy jewish site for prayer and basically what these women want is equal access to all of the nominations and those who want to practice their religion at the wall. basically they have been doing this for the past two decades. this is not a new act by these women. they call themselves women of the wall. they go down, wear the shawls, pray at the wall and they say they should be allowed to do that. the high court has put out a ruling basically saying they can go down to the property but the government has made a separate area that is not at the
. patrick's. bill: with more now, fox news religion contributor, father jonathan morris is with us this morning. father, good morning to you. can you hear me? >> i can hear you fine. there you two. bill: never sounded better by the way. your initial reaction? what do you think? >> i was shocked as cardinal dolan mentioned. he was shocked. above all because the vatican doesn't like to set new precedent. this is, this is huge in the sense that the next pope, soon as he starts getting sick or elderly, people are going to start asking him very strongly, are you ready to resign? and the reason why, in the past the popes have been very reluctant to do so, they have recognized that the main job of a pope is not to be a manager but rather to protect the teachings of the church and the teachings of the bible. to pass on something to future generations and you don't need to be in perfect health to do that. on the other hand, it is obvious that pope benedict for a good long while, like the great reporting by lauren green just there, recognized that we're living in new times and there are new
out of office. i think they are going to have to form some kind of religion and go to church every sunday and worship him. it is all ridiculous. all the political -- it is just a game. nobody even wants to go or listen to the sides even more. the want to be right. host: what keeps you from being that way? caller: i watch politics continuously, every day, i listened to all sides. i believe in listening to the facts. i do not care if you are republican or democrat. i am a patriotic person. i care about this nation. sake, we are $16 trillion in debt. if we go bankrupt -- host: respect to the topic about hegel nomination. -- bring us back to the topic about the hagel nomination. caller: there is some reason why the bottom. host: this on twitter -- here is another tweet -- in clinton, maryland, a democrat. caller: this is politics as usual. i will cannibalize -- they are eating their own. here is a guy who has been in a warrant -- a war. he has endorsements from other secretaries of defense. you have a leon panetta who wants to get on with his life. politicians in washington are playing
who have different sexual orientation is a fundamental struggle for many religions and catholicism and judaism included. i am reminded of the myth of the owl of minerva but says it is flies at dusk, but flies to late to help anyone, and the question for the pope is he is the owl of m minerva, and that he was not ultimately able to conquer to the satisfaction of many people, and he has done something that myself have many issues with the pope, but he has done something very important that he is a sort of modern george washington here that he has stepped back as someone who has worked in politics and watched a lot of people who never know when to say when and have no humility, but that to me strikes me as a fundamentally humble act. >> and it shows a lot of spiritual freedom, too, and rare is the person who will relinquish power voluntarily these days. so it is interesting that jesus points to this both backwards and forward and as sister was saying that the jesus is always going out to the marginalized and if jesus were here today -- >> okay. here we go. >> father, that is a great w
